Plastic milling on homemade CNC # CNC1000
I made this CNC machine myself in 2015, videos of the same year. For a long time I was asked to make a video on the assembly of this machine, later my hard drive broke, by some miracle I found some materials on this machine on another medium. After almost 4 years I will publish the materials, as I did with my own hands a CNC machine tool from the available materials.
These were successful doubles, the first attempts to mill plastic on the CNC. Two-way milling cutter for wood, for plastic it is better to use a single-cutter, because plastic melts and sticks to the milling cutter. If plastic chips stick to the mill, then the mill will most likely break or turn black from overheating.
I decided to try how my homemade 3D printer will cope with small models, for this I chose mini-toys and printed them.
Almost all toys bought for the daughter do not cause the child's interest, which can not be said about developing toys made by themselves. Below is a photo of the simplest developing mat, which the wife made for a couple of evenings from old buttons.
This toy is also called "elevator for balls". Marble machine made of cardboard.
A friend said like acoo kie, his wife said some windows :) And yet they spin!
This is my first CNC machine assembled with my own hands from available materials. The cost price of the machine is about $170.
